Leesa Charlotte is a producer, podcast creator and singer, who stumbled into the industry with a Battlestar Galactica rewatch podcast in 2017. She is the producer, co-host and Jill-of-all-trades for Sweetbitter and Cult of America podcasts, and has assisted in the launch of several successful shows, including Sweetbitter which was featured on Apple, Stitcher and PocketCasts in its first 6 months.
Her degree from Monash in International Relations in Psychology, specializing in extremism and identity, consolidated her obsession with history and politics — and she loves podcasting as a medium to discuss these topics. Leesa feels strongly about supporting independent podcasts and podcasters and has recently joined the Three Springs Media podcast network to help further this goal.
In her spare time, you can find her galavanting around New York attending burlesque, drag or singing at her favourite piano bar.
